Week 5 Half Marathon Training Recap

Better late than never, right?!

2014-07-14 17.38.51

I only ended up running 3 days, but still managed to get in over 30 miles for the week! I did my speed-work on Wednesday (treadmill): 8 x 400 repeats (love this workout!) for 30 minutes (just over 3 miles), hill-work on Friday (treadmill): 3.5 miles of level 1 hills in 35 minutes, and my long run on Sunday (outside): 8.2 miles (doing 1:1 intervals) in 96 minutes. Oh my Goodness, it was BRUTAL out there- 94 degrees and 100% humidity. I kept waiting (and hoping for) the thunderstorm, but it never came until after I was back home :(


Tonight I’ll be trying out a new recipe from One-Dish Vegan by Robin Robertson. It’s Cumin-Spiced Quinoa Salad with Jalapeno Pesto. I can’t share the recipe, but I will report back with the outcome!

  1. The weather here has been ridiculously humid as well, and the afternoon thunderstorms stretch into the evening. Ugh! Mother Nature is really messing w/my walking routine!
